Ten research teams led by Columbia University faculty, across multiple disciplines, have received a Columbia Life Science Accelerator Pilot Grant for their out-of-the-box lab-to-market projects. Researchers are addressing a diverse array of problems in several disciplines, from engineering and medicine to bioimaging and oncology. The winning projects focus on research or inventions that are on a path to commercialization and have real-world applications in the clinic that can impact patient care and diagnosis.
The awardees were selected for their potential to translate their research from the lab to commercial market and stood out for their truly novel scientific solution and clinical merit. The teams this year share a total of $747,000 in pilot funding.
